The Game is mourning the death of his father, George Taylor, who died unexpectedly in his sleep Wednesday morning.
A family member found Taylor unresponsive around 8:30 a.m. PST in his home in Apple Valley, CA and a neighbor called 911. He was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was 65 years old. There is no foul play suspected at this point but the coroner’s office has George’s body now, and is investigating the death.
Game, who is ye to publicly address the death, had a good relationship with his father but it wasn’t easy growing up. In the 2016 docu-series Streets of Compton, Game explained: “Nearly every family in Compton has been touched by drugs, and mine is no exception. My uncle Greg was murdered down the street from my house when I was 6. My dad turned to PCP to dull the pain.” He has rapped about his father in many songs including ‘Bloody Moon‘ and ‘Ol English‘.
